SASUKE 34 (officially,「SASUKE2017秋」) has been officially announced by TBS on Twitter, and will, similarly to the previous tournament, commemorate SASUKE's 20-year anniversary since the very first tournament on September 27th, 1997. It is the third tournament after Morimoto Yūsuke's kanzenseiha and aired on October 8, 2017 with a time slot of 3 and a half hours from 6:30 PM (18:30) JST, identical to the air time of SASUKE 32.

Applications

Applications were released May 2, 2017 by TBS on their official website and Twitter. Applications were closed on May 26th. The first audition was held on June 4th in Osaka, and the second audition was held on June 11th in Tokyo.

Filming

The taping dates were confirmed to be on the July 22nd and July 23rd, 2017. The taping of the First and Second Stage was taped in July 22nd while Third and Final Stage was taped in July 23rd.

During filming, due to the hot weather, all preventive measures are taken to prevent any competitors suffering from heatstroke during the day. Frequent breaks occurred during taping. Nevertheless, the First and Second Stage finished taping on schedule on July 22nd.

Some of the top competitors were absent on this tournament due to injury, like Asa Kazuma, Kanno Hitoshi, Kishimoto Shinya.

Tournament Summary

All obstacles across four stages remained the same as in SASUKE 33, with minor modification for several obstacles. For the first time since SASUKE 21, the First Stage were remained the same as the previous tournament. Also, the First Stage's time limit was reduced by 5 seconds, though the time limit for women and/or over 50s was increased by 5 seconds from previous tournament, marks the third tournament with a time limit difference since SASUKE 32. On a side-note, this tournament ended up being the second time in SASUKE history, that the First Stage's time limit was not a multiple of five for two consecutive tournaments (SASUKE 8 and SASUKE 9 being the first time). There were notable failures, like Mori Wataru's slip-up on the Quad Steps and Matachi Ryo's failure on the Double Pendulum. In the end, 24 competitors completed the First Stage, which was the fifth largest number of First Stage completions in SASUKE history by date, the most clears since Morimoto Yūsuke's kanzenseiha in SASUKE 31, including Takahashi Kenji, Urushihara Yuuji (who declared retirement if he failed the First Stage in this tournament), Anastase Ragivaru, Darvish Kenji avenging his Lumberjack Climb failure last tournament, two out of three Black Tigers members, Suzuki Yusuke and Kawaguchi Tomohiro, both redeemed themselves on the Double Pendulum. Out of all the clears, three competitors were new faces. In addition, for the second time in SASUKE history, a woman completed the First Stage, as Jessie Graff completed it with 14.51 seconds left, joining Tanabe Chie's First Stage completion in SASUKE 2, 19 years ago.

In the Second Stage, the time limit remained unchanged, albeit for the first time in the Second Stage, women got an additional 10 seconds to complete the stage. Nevertheless, 9 competitors completed it, including Jessie Graff, who made history once again as the first woman ever to complete the Second Stage in SASUKE, and Obata Satoshi, who became the first member of the Black Tigers to advance to the Third Stage. A lot of competitors either timed out or failed an obstacle, notably for Nagasaki Shunsuke, who failed on the Spider Walk, taking out its very first competitor since SASUKE 17, and Takahashi Kenji, who became the first competitor to fail the Reverse Conveyor by not timing out.

In the Third Stage, the results were slightly better than the previous tournament, as no competitor failed on the Flying Bar, as even though the wire was still present, the cradles were a little bigger, amending the difficulty of the obstacle. While two competitors failed on the Sidewinder Kai, it was the Ultra Crazy Cliffhanger that did the most damage, eliminating almost every competitor who attempted it, including Jessie Graff and Drew Drechsel. Only Morimoto Yūsuke was able to get past the obstacle, and successfully making a transition to the Vertical Limit Kai, before his grip gave out and fell. For the fourth time in his SASUKE appearances, Morimoto Yūsuke became the Last Man Standing, and for the third time, he made the furthest than any other competitors. Also, with Jessie Graff fell at the Ultra Crazy Cliffhanger, this marked the furthest point a woman ever made in SASUKE tournament.

This tournament ended yet again with no Third Stage clears, leaving the Pipe Slider and the Final Stage untouched for a third consecutive tournament.
